Browsing UCSC NumtS tracks to identify orthologous NumtS. Workflow shown assesses presence of identical NumtS in two species for which the UCSC annotation tracks were produced. Graphs show two human NumtS, (HSA_NumtS_006_b1, HSA_NumtS_009_b1) and ChimpNet track, indicating that the former is also present in chimpanzee, whereas the latter is not. Following flowchart (and clicking on links and boxes marked with red arrows), this hypothesis can be verified on Chimp Browser. Alignment provided by Net tracks provides additional evidence of presence or absence of NumtS in species examined. See additional file 8, Figure 2 screenshots for magnified versions of screenshots.
